Open Resources, with the support by Centro Servizi per il Volontariato Treviso and the Council of Treviso has organizes activities around the theme of the bicycle:

The bicycle is the most used mean of transportation by refugees and asylum seekers. For this reason we have considered fundamental to organize a workshop and to provide a space in order to teach how to repair a bicycle and provide the tools to do so.

The workshop has been structured in three cycles (for a total of 45 hours), each made by 5 weekly sessions of 3 hours each for a total of 20 attendants.

The activities will take place in Treviso at the “La Bisatta”, a recently restored and reopened self-organized space managed by Open Resources.

General and specific objectives:
